Many people daydream about traveling the world, but all of them have the same excuse - lack of money. Tomislav, after traveling the world for years with almost no money, shows how it is possible for everyone to do the same, if they really want to.
Tomislav Perko, 29, is a travel writer from Croatia. After a career of a stockbroker, broke because of the financial crisis, he hits the road and turns it into his home. He uses alternative ways of traveling – hitchhiking, couchsurfing, working/volunteering, and manages to wander around the world with just a little bit of money in his pocket, meeting the most amazing people on the way.
Five years later, he publishes a book “1000 Days of Spring” and goes around giving lectures about what it means to live on the road. Find out more on his website: http://tomislavperko.com/en/.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
I love this! What he said at the end is so true, it's better to do the things you want to do when you can, than to regret not doing them later. I wish I could get up and travel like he did but I have MS and I need clean bathrooms and good beds to sleep in, and I don't have the stamina for it. But I did do a lot of wonderful things when I was younger so no regrets here :)
How many of you are watching this. And feel imprisoned by your current existence? Your 9-5. dead end. Your hated routine. The "same ole same ole" Scientist did research on the probability of a person even being born and it is 1 out of 400 TRILLION!! A rare occurrence . Why are we not using this gift to live happy? Well. I've been rotting away for 2 decades now. Thinking there is so much more to experience besides my sheltered little world. And im gonna sell everything. And travel. In one year i will be able to take the leap. I can always come back to my dead end life. But the pain of sitting here watching the world go buy, and CHOOSING to live in depression has finally taken its toll on me. I haven't really lives since my 20s. And i can no longer abuse this gift of life i was given, Good luck to all of you. And remember. CHOICE is your most powerful weapon
This was great, I been tryin to find out about "how to have more confident" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about - Hanhristian Ganuhammad Blueprint - (search on google ) ? Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my neighbour got amazing results with it.

This is my second time listening to this fine presentation. I just wonder though about getting through customs etc as doesn't each country want to know how much travel money you have, or if you have a means to get back home again, like some universal airline ticket of some kind? I think you have to have a lot of money in order for like Australia to allow you entrance. Also the audience and speaker are all young and very resilient physically. Is this possible at 64 yrs old? I will be traveling on probably $683 a month Social Security. Thanks though as when I was younger I traveled like this, only much easier as it was all over Europe for one year and worked all kinds of jobs, only that was 43 years ago ha! I always had a destination sign, dressed with clean clothes, never hitched at night, didn't wear concealing hats, had eye contact with drivers passing, and have hitched all over US and Canada that way too, good rules.
Hitchhiking is a lot of fun. It is scary, sure, but there's nothing quite like it and in my experience leaves you more whole as a person. The tip of being happy and talking to your driver is the best hands down. People bought me McDonalds when I was hitchhiking, all I did was talk to them! Being young helps too I guess.
Save 20% every year and after the 4th year, shut everything down put the necessaries in storage throw the rest away and go live someplace else in the world for a year and work and live. Touch the 20% savings only emergencies.

That is very anti-materism haha. But realistically I ultimately don’t think it is realistic for female travellers to do that for too long because of safety issue. At least for me. Good on the spirit though!
I was hitchhiking in Malaysia, from point A, quite a ways along a country route with almost no buildings or other development, to point B.
The driver who picked me up got me half way and then asked for a fare. That's right: "Money, please."
It wasn't a lot, but it was obvious why he didn't ask for it at the beginning of the ride. I refused. He threatened to drop me off there in the middle of nowhere.
"OK," I said.
So I had to wait quite a while for another, more honest driver to pick me up. But it was worth it not to be scammed.
i know what your next plan should be baby. find a wife get married and have kids so that your handsomeness gets carried across generations. give one women a cute husband and some kids an adventurous loveable daddy.
This is a helluva lot easier said than done, we aren't all European. Whenever I travel, I always almost explicitly only meet Aussies or Europeans. The work schedule is different there, they have tons of vacation.
Wow. Yeah I rarely, if ever, watch these Ted Ex videos. That's only because I typically get INCREDIBLY board within the first few minutes of it starting. But I honestly have to admit, this one was really interesting. I was absolutely fascinated by his adventures, his journeys, all of his side notes and handy advice to anyone who may be seeking too travel on a dime so to speak. It's pretty amazing what he has experienced.. Gotta feel TOTALLY PROUD OF HIMSELF, BECAUSE THIS WAS SOMETHING THAT MOST WILL ONLY DREAM ABOUT ACCOMPLISHING. AND WITH YOUR HELP, ADVICE, TIPS,&: TRICKS, MAYBE THE LIST OF PPL WHO TRAVEL WILL CONTINUE TO GROW... HOW AMAZING IS THIS.. ALL GOOD POSITIVE AND AWESOME.. Right on & good luck with any future adventures .
Wow, this is motivational! Thank you. I'm 17 and it's my dream to travel like this but society and their ideas keep scaring me off besides, I'm a girl so it is more dangerous to travel as a lonely girl than as a lonely guy...
I hitchhiked across Canada in the summer of 2009 with a girl i met after i worked at a hostel in vancouver.
That summer was nothing short of magical.
I remember we walked from medicine hat all the way almost to Jasper.
but on the other hand we had a trucker give us a ride all the way from thunder bay to calgary. he woulda brought us right into vancouver but we had friends to see.
For me traveling is not heading from point A to point B and so on, it is about experiencing something unusual. Sometimes it is for free or small sum of money, but it is really often so that it costs a lot. Having headed to let's say Galapagos and haven't seen its beauty on a diving safari is not a good trip for me, I would rather don't go at all if I can't afford those "must see" things. For me traveling is not about duration of trip or quantity of countries I've seen, it is more about what I've seen/felt, it is really necessary for me to experience the top attractions the place has to offer, otherwise I will be very disappointed at home that I've spent money AND time and haven't seen something I was so eager to see.
The world is your oyster and love that he has found affordable options to explore the world. Seeking opportunities. This incredibly fascinating and mind blowing world. Couch surfing 🙌🏻 air bnb🙏🏻 hostels!! Minimize cost of Food, transportation, and accommodation!! You’ll live cheaper than at home!! Love it!!

Несомненно, сложность разрешения семейных неурядиц обусловлено тем, что между супругами, как правило, нет соглашения, брачного контракта и они предъявляют друг другу различные требования, как материального так и морального характера.
